Subversion 1.4.0 is the first new feature release since 1.3.0 and
includes a number of new improvements and features. The changes
between 1.3.2 and 1.4.0 are listed in the CHANGES document for this
release. You can also find a detailed list of the changes in our
release notes at:


Before upgrading to 1.4.0, please take note of the following:

 * We have decided to splice out the libraries that we used to ship
   alongside the Subversion source code into a separate package. If
   you wish to use the dependencies we provide, you must download both
   the subversion source package and the corresponding '-deps'
   package, and decompress both into the same directory.

 * Due to various improvements made to the working copy library, the
   working copy format has changed. Using Subversion 1.4.0 on any
   working copy created by previous versions of Subversion will
   SILENTLY upgrade your working copy, which means that previous
   versions of Subversion will no longer be able to read it.

 * One particular feature of this release is support for BDB 4.4. If
   you are using the Win32 binary packages, or if you build Subversion
   1.4.0 with BDB 4.4, your BDB repositories will be automatically
   upgraded to the 4.4 format when first accessed. Both upgrading from
   BDB 4.2 to 4.4 and 4.3 to 4.4 should work transparently, with no
   extra work on your behalf.
